India has almost halved maternal and child mortality over the past three decades, but there is a long way to go.
Child deaths in India have dropped by 45% since 1990. India’s success in improving child survival is proof that there can be a better future for India’s mothers and children.
PARTNERING FOR A BETTER FUTURE FOR INDIA’S WOMEN AND CHILDREN Through partnerships with the Government of India, the private sector, and civil society, USAID demonstrates how high-impact solutions addressing access and quality of basic health services can put India on a path to save millions of mothers and children. USAID’s health programs improve the quality of care at birth and help reduce pneumonia, diarrhea and malnutrition. USAID strengthens the knowledge and skills of health care providers in both government and private health facilities, and ensures availability of essential medicines through technology-enabled solutions. USAID partners with professional medical associations to support accreditation or ratings for private maternal and child health facilities. USAID also supports community-level approaches by promoting healthy behaviors and building the skills of community health workers, targeting the lifesaving impact around the time of delivery.
